Hm... So far, I've re-read:
Rufus M. -- not sure, because while these days you can definitely find
Eleanor Estes in the public library if you really want it, what happens
when they start weeding her?
Mummy Market (Nancy Burns Brelis) -- Over to the kids. I still like it
but not enough to keep.
Pippi Longstocking-- again, it didn't wear well.
All of a Kind Family-- is going to my Jewish friend and I can borrow it
if I want to.
Mystery of the Other Girl (Wylly Folk St. John) -- going away becuase
it's merely classic pre-teen mystery
Miss Bianca in the Orient-- I will probably back down on giving this
way, simply because I adore Miss Biana and Bernard so... but this was
definitely the weakest of the series.
Burnish me bright (about a mute child and the mime who teaches him)
definitely keeping-- it's a grown-up book anyway.
Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, the only Judy Blue book I really ever
liked, is going away because my fourth-grade niece needs it more than I
do, and besides, it's really only that good when you're a fourth-grade
Island of the Aunts is probably going to the kids, not because I don't
like it, but because I think they'll like it better. :)
